German Baroque Arias & Cantatas
Dawn Bailey, soprano
Roderick Bryce, baritone
Naomi Delafield, baroque violin

This concert features some of the finest works by Handel and Bach.
Edmonton’s own soprano superstar Dawn Bailey will be featured in 3 of Handel’s German arias. Bach’s spectacular cantata 158 will be sung by bass Roderick Bryce.
Baroque violinist Naomi Delafield will perform Bach’s hauntingly beautiful Adagio from the violin sonata in G minor, while Josephine van Lier will play the 2nd cello suite in d minor on baroque cello.
Handel wrote several splendid duets for soprano, bass, and continuo, and three of those will finish the program.
With a cast of stellar Alberta period performers, this concert will be a delight for the senses.
